After watching Hellbound’s first scene, you’ll be hooked, just like the protagonists who are taken to hell by demonic creatures that kill everyone sentenced to death by “angels.”
However, the supernatural horror eventually fades into the background without losing any of the original dread. Now the focus is on how these religious visits affect Korean culture as a whole, complete with the kinds of surprises you might anticipate from Yeon Sang-ho, the brain behind this, and Train to Busan.
You may be wondering what Netflix’s next major Korean hit will be after the shocking cliffhanger in the finale. Even if so, we’ve got your back.
Hellbound Season 2: Release Date
Hellbound’s first season enthralled viewers with an engrossing plot. Season 1 ended on a massive cliffhanger, so it’s understandable that many fans believe a season 2 is a lock. However, it appears that neither Hellbound’s creator nor Netflix has confirmed a second season at this point.
Those who enjoy the Korean fantasy series need not be discouraged. The director of Hellbound, Yeon Sang-ho, has already spoken to Variety about his future ambitions for the series, despite there being no official word about Hellbound season 2.
“Because Hellbound is based on the original webtoons, my partner Choi Kyu-Seok and I have decided that the story afterward will be told first through the webtoon and, as for whether we would want to turn that into another live-action series, that’s something that we will need further discussion on.” – Director
That means Netflix’s decision to allow Yeon Sang-ho to continue working on his webtoon series before beginning production on the live-adaptation of Hellbound season 2 could cause a delay in the publication of that season. If that’s the case, the second season could be delayed until 2023 at the earliest if that’s the case.
In the meantime, we’re holding out hope for a second season of Hellbound. We’ll let you know when it’s renewed.
Who will return in Hellbound Season 2?
There’s a good chance Kim Shin-rok will return as Park Jeong-Ja in season two, and she may even take on a larger role in the series going ahead.
Season one standout Kim Hyun-Joo, who played attorney turned badass Min Hye-jin in the first six episodes, should return as well.
Yoo Ah-comeback in’s to the role of Jeong Jin-soo is still possible despite the many deaths that occurred in the first season of the show. No, we know it’s a long shot, but we’d be thrilled to see more of the scary cult leader before he took over as “New Truth Society” head in season one.
What surprising twists can we expect in Hellbound Season 2?
The first season’s conclusion provides us a good idea of the horror series’ prospective direction, but there are no indicators as to what a second season may contain. In the final seconds of the season, the film focuses on the charred remains of Park Jeong-Ja.
The New Truth Society used her death to frighten the public into supporting their cause earlier in the season. Even though she appeared to be dead, she had been raised from the grave.
In light of this, we can conclude that death at the hands of the monsters is not as final as previously believed. Bringing the dead back to life would give humanity the hope it needs to fight against these horrific events.
The first season focused mostly on how humans reacted to the threat of extinction. Possibly, we’ll learn more about the monsters and their motivations for wiping out all of humanity. Netflix has not yet said whether or not the drama will be renewed, so we’ll find out what happens next in this universe.
But if the series is continued then we can expect many surprising twists as the end episode of Hellbound Season 1 has completely changed the story of the series.
